All of our wall panels have a built in tongue and groove interlocking system that is watertight and creates a flush finish and can be installed using one of the following methods –
Adhesive & Silicone
The majority of wall panels tend to be installed directly onto a plastered wall or ceiling, or directly on top of tiles. To save time and mess the panels can also be installed directly on top of ceramic tiles using silicone. If you are going on top of a porous surface are such as plaster we recommend using a solvent free adhesive (Pink Grip).
Adhesive & Pins, Screws Or Staples
You can pin, screw or staple the panels at either side of the boards where the tongue and groove interlocking system is located (pins will be hidden once another panel is slotted into place) this will hold the panels in place whilst the adhesive sets in. Note if you are using screws there is no need to drill or use plugs. They can also be installed to a timber frame.
(Please note installation method is personal choice and preference, you should choose the best method that will suit your specific project)
TOOLS YOU MAY NEED.
INSTALLING CEILING PANELS
TOP TIP: Before you cut any panels to length, measure the width of the ceiling. If you are installing a panel with a silver feature strip, you may need to cut the first and last panel along its length to achieve a 'balanced' look. This will avoid finishing off with a thin strip when you come to fit the final panel.
TOP TIP: The Coving Trim is easier to fit by removing the lip from the back with a Stanley Knife and discard it. Fix to the ceiling and wall directly, using a combination of silicone and double-sided tape (run a bead of silicone along the wall, and position the double-sided tape to the edge of the trim that will stick to the ceiling). The double-sided tape holds the trim in place while the silicone sets.
